5.0 out of 5 stars TOTALLY IMPRESSED!, September 25, 2012
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Pulse Elite Edition Wireless Stereo Headset (Video Game)
Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
All I can say is WOW! I am not going to reiterate ALL of the 'technical' specifications since the product page does a great job of that. I am just going to explain why I was completely and totally impressed from the minute I put The PULSE headset on!

The BassImpact technology is stellar because it is noise-cancelling. While watching a Blu-ray, the Pulse produced sounds that were not even audible while wearing my previous headset. What is most impressive is the hi-fidelity virtual surround sound and BassImpact noise-cancelling technology is all packed into a wireless headset weighing only 11-ounces. I never even had the urge to remove the headphones. Additionally, there is no intrusive or protruding microphone. Sony has tucked the microphone away inside the headset. Amazingly, the 'invisible' microphone produces crystal clear voice chat with your on-line gaming friends.

Gamers will enjoy the 'preset modes' for customization. You can choose from modes such as "game, music, shooter, fighting and racing." The modes provide optimal sound levels for each genre and are still customizable for your personal listening preference.

The PULSE is perfect for use with PlayStation Vita or almost any other mobile device using the 3 foot included 3.5mm audio cable. It can also be used with certain television sets, as long as they have a 3.5mm audio output jack.

You are able to stay informed using on-screen headset status updates. The only real complaint I have is that the controls are housed on the ear pads themselves which makes it hard to adjust the settings while in the middle of a game. This is a minor concern once you get used to your preferred settings and learn to have them adjusted accordingly before beginning a game.

In summary, on a scale from 1 to 10, I give the PULSE a 9.75. Way to go, Sony! Nice engineering! :)

What is the 3.5mm jack on the dongle used for? And I've heard this can be wireless from the TV as well, is this true? How does that work?
Thanks if you answer.

3.5mm jack on the dongle connects a cord from your tv to the dongle so that whatever sound your tv produces goes to the dongle and wirelessly to your headset (that's what I've heard at least). Not sure about the specifics yet, probably will be picking this up this weekend

@DHL, Yep, that's what I thought as well. Also I assume it could make the headset wired if you were in an area with lots of interference. Since my TV does not have a headphone out, but does have RCA audio out, would an RCA to 3.5mm jack work? Oh vine members please answer.

For making it "wired" I would just imagine you would run a cord from your headset directly to whatever your audio source would be. But there is a guy on youtube (panteradown2) who used a 3.5mm female to 1/4" male adapter to connect to his sound system. So I can't imagine that a RCA out to 3.5mm would not work.

Really confused about this review, some very inaccurate information in here. These are not noise cancelling headphones. It has a noise cancelling mic, but that's it. No idea why the reviewer is associating noise cancelling with the BassImpact feature. This is a complete misunderstanding of the product. Review reads like a promotional pamphlet instead of a review. Raise your bar Amazon.

@T. Hearn

Agreed, it was probably seeing the word noise-cancelling on the box and the automatic association with headphones rather than microphone.

The BassImpact is essentially just a rumble pack, not a noise-canceling feature.
